Sober Blood

Twenty-two years for a plastic chip
That says how long ago I quit
Don’t tell the truth that’ll never change
I still want to everyday

I gave up what was once my life
A family–my kids, my wife
And don’t you know not a day goes by
When I ain’t trying to make it right

If I’d only known all of the things that I know now
I can’t help but wonder how my life would have turned out
I might die alone although the papers may not show
That the sober blood of a good man is gone

I ain’t missed one of them meetings since
The day that I signed up for this
But the lessons learned won’t ever heal the pain
Of a family still suffering

On my knees, I ask the Lord
Questions that He’s heard before
Just what can I do for forgiveness now?
I ask of You this final hour

If I’d only known all of the things that I know now
I can’t help but wonder how my life would have turned out
I might die alone although the papers may not show
That the sober blood of a good man is gone

Here I stand at Heaven’s doors
Wondering why, not really sure
Then I hear a voice calling out my name
I guess it’s true that Jesus saves

If I’d only known all of the things that I know now
I can’t help but wonder how my life would have turned out
I might die alone although the papers may not show
That the sober blood of a good man is gone
